Like implementing the Anaplan platform, building your CoE should be an agile process that grows proportionally with your Anaplan footprint. What has your CoE development maturity path looked like throughout the months or years as it has grown? Any tips or advice you would give to those following in your footsteps?
Groupon has had an exciting Anaplan journey and the COE team has been key to our success. I think about that journey in 3 key phases.
As you can see, as we’ve grown our Anaplan use cases and models, our COE team has grown and evolved. The advice I have to others on this journey is simple: invest heavily in your internal Anaplan COE team. In my opinion, it’s a requirement to have internal talent that is 100% devoted to Anaplan. To take it a step further, developing a strong team of individuals that make up your COE team allow an org to scale their Anaplan solutions and ensure best practices. The COE team at Groupon is a big reason for our success on this journey.
